SAFE APPROACH

Safe Approach for The BArcader Marina from the Sea

 

SAFE APPROACH TO THE BARCADERE MARINA BY SEA

THE DEEPEST ROUTE TO THE BARCADERE THROUGH GRAND CAYMAN’S NORTH SOUND
Remain at least 200 yards away from the reef at all times and be on the lookout for dive mooring buoys that line theedge of the wall, where the shelf surrounding the island drops off from around 100 feet to several thousand feet deep
1. MOORING BUOY JUST OUTSIDE OF THE MAIN CHANNEL: 019º23.033’N / 081º19.514’W
There is a mooring buoy about 600 yards outside the channel right at the edge of the “drop-off”, this buoy lines up with
the approach through the channel almost perfectly and has about 30 feet of rope hanging off of it. If you are waiting for
a pilot or guidance through the channel this is the best place to moor. The coordinates for the Main Channel are as
follows:

2. CENTER OF MAIN CHANNEL OUTER MARKERS: 019º22.7899’N / 081º19.6332’W
Approach the channel at a heading of 205º and maintain that heading all the way through the channel.

3. CENTER OF MAIN CHANNEL INNER MARKERS: 019º22.4433’N / 081º19.7953’W
Continue for a hundred yards on the same heading in order to completely clear the channel before turning to a heading
of 139º and steering to the next waypoint 1.8 miles away, just Northwest of Booby Cay, keeping a lookout for Marine
Park buoys*. Vessels with a draft of less than 5 feet (1.5m) may go directly from waypoint 3 to waypoint 5 at high tide.
 
4. BOOBY CAY WAYPOINT: 019º20.665’N / 081º18.150’W
Upon reaching the Booby Cay waypoint you will need to turn to a heading of 232º immediately to avoid going into
shallower water and maintain the 232º heading for the rest of the approach, about 4 nautical miles, again remaining on
the lookout for buoys*. This heading will take you directly to the Barcadere channel.

5. CENTER OF BARCADERE OUTER CHANNEL ENTRANCE: 019º18.4298’N / 081º21.1733’W
There are four markers for the Barcadere channel, two outer and two inner markers. They are fixed PVC markers and
stand approximately 4 or 5 feet above the surface of the water, depending on the tide. They are taped with the
requisite red and green reflective tape and also lit accordingly. When passing through them you will see a 40 foot high
lighthouse painted orange and white, with a BLUE flashing light, 0.5 nautical miles dead ahead, it is situated on the
North side of the marina entrance. (NB: the inner red fixed marker has been damaged and temporarily replaced with a
red floating channel marker)

6. CENTER OF BARCADERE MARINA INNER CHANNEL ENTRANCE: 019º18.24834’N / 081º21.4455’W
A stone breakwater has recently been constructed just in front of the marina
entrance and there are red and green buoys marking the channel into the
marina. Upon passing through these marker buoys, make a 90º turn to Port and
then make a sweeping 180º turn to Starboard through the next set of red and
green marker buoys toward the 100’ wide canal leading into the marina basin.
Once inside the marina, vessels should tie up at the marginal dock on the
Starboard side near the travel lift piers, to await Customs and Immigration
clearance prior to proceeding to a slip. If you have already cleared Customs and
Immigration, and know what slip has been designated to you, please feel free to
proceed accordingly. We are standing by on VHF channel 16 and will be happy to
assist with securing your vessel upon your arrival.

* There are several lines of buoys that dissect the North Sound. Some denote the extent of Marine Parks, while two mark
submarine power cables. Approximately 1 nautical mile into the first leg of the approach to the Barcadere, after passing
through the Main Channel and turning to a heading of 139º, you will pass through the first line of marine park buoys
running North-East to South-West. You will pass through this same line of Marine Park buoys again, this time running
North to South, 1.8 nautical miles after reaching the Booby Cay waypoint and turning to the 232º heading on the second
leg of the approach. Continuing on this heading you should be able to see another line of buoys less than a mile off of
your Port side running approximately East-North-East to West-South-West, this line of buoys mark a submarine power
cable, which actually comes ashore at the Barcadere property, and, will be on your Port side the rest of the way as you
continue towards the marina. There is also another line of buoys, running from North to South, marking a submarine
power cable that intersects this East-North-East to West-South-West line just to the South of the Barcadere channel. This
area can become a little confusing, particularly at night, but these second and third lines of buoys are lit and can actually
serve to locate the Barcadere channel very well, now that you know what to look for.

Disclaimer: Please note that this is a good faith attempt to provide the deepest and safest route possible for a vessel
with a draft not exceeding 8 feet (2.4 meters) and is not intended as a substitute for, or in place of official navigational
charts. For details of depths of Cayman Islands waters and Grand Cayman’s North Sound, please refer to official charts.
We also recommend that any vessel with a draft of more than 7’ should only enter or leave the marina on a high tide.
